The Fall- Extricate (1990)
I think this is my favourite Fall LP.
The sacred cows of British Independent music,
The Fall, in the person of Mark Smith, made anti fashion a fashion, anti pop popular.
The miserable old fucker has been turning out this intelligent though often barely intelligible stuff for 32 years now- for which we should all be eternally grateful.
By the way- I once went to a funeral where the preacher sounded ah just ah like Mark Smith ah, which was strange.
